Why Treat Acne?
It’s estimated that roughly 40 to 50 million Americans are affected with acne, and it’s not necessarily a condition that only affects teenagers. Acne can also pose a problem for people in their 20s, 30s, or even older. Treating acne with help of acne treatment is a Must!
This common condition can manifest itself with an array of different appearances on the face, neck, and back. Acne may develop as a mild condition for some, but Individuals with severe acne may have to cope with:
- Tender, deep, or painful cysts
- Skin Nodules
- Deep scarring
- Surface irregularities
Scarring can frequently occur after the healing of deep acne lesions leaving a disfiguring look to the skin’s surface. Unfortunately, the exact cause of acne is still unknown, but there can be a tendency for the condition to run in families. If you have a sibling or parent that had or has acne, especially the severe type that causes scarring, you may want to research treatments with an acne treatment dermatologist if you start to develop the condition.
If you do start to notice signs of acne, it’s not a good idea to wait. The sooner you begin treatment, the sooner you will begin to see a resolution to the problem with positive results. If you wait, and let the condition develop so that it’s full blown acne, the more chance you have of developing inflammation, painful cysts, and facial scars.
